The trailer of the Siddharth Anand film reminds you of the Dhoom franchise.
War trailer: Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff vie for each other’s blood

After Dhoom 3 (2013) became a blockbuster, there have been various unconfirmed reports speculating about the next film in the Dhoom series. But there hasn’t been anything concrete or official about a possible Dhoom 4.
But if you are a die-hard Dhoom (2004) fan and can’t wait for the fourth film, your thirst can be quenched by Siddharth Anand’s War (2019), which is produced by the same banner Yash Raj Films, as the plot reminds you of the superhit franchise. That’s not all. The character of Hrithik Roshan is named Kabir, which is what John Abraham's character was named in Dhoom (2004).
Interestingly, the trailer is released on the day the first Dhoom completes 15 years. Coincidence?
War is about Kabir (Hrithik), an Indian soldier-turned-rogue. He has made life hell for the army and this makes him the enemy of the nation. In order to kill him, the government of India takes help of Khalid (Tiger Shroff), who was once Kabir’s student. This starts a high-octane chase saga between Kabir and Khalid.
The cat and mouse game between the two and who's bad and who's not is where War reminds of Dhoom. The only difference is that the villains in the Dhoom franchise were robbers while Kabir in War is a far bigger criminal.
Having said that, the action and stunts are impressive and will probably look more exciting on the big screen. The casting of Hrithik and Shroff looks perfect and their back story adds ensures that it’s not just a bad guy versus good guy saga. Vaani Kapoor as the female lead hardly makes an appearance.
War is all set to release on 2 October. Watch the trailer below and let us know how keen you are to watch this film.
